Once a week I will give you a sneak peek into my phone’s camera roll. No filters. No design. No tutorial or lengthy post. Just a little trip into my time zone. Happy Friday!

Filter-Free Friday - Happy - Mommy Standard Time

I’m going to keep it real.  I am still dealing with the emotional ups and downs that come along with menopause and it’s TOUGH!  Menopausal mood swings are no joke!

But then I scroll through pictures on my phone for Filter-Free Friday and I find this gem.  My sweet Mini-Me with her newly-acquired fan after a visit to Grandma.  She wanted me to take a picture of her so that she could see what she looked like as an emoji (since she couldn’t see through it in order to look in the mirror).

I don’t know…there’s just something about this picture and this memory that remind me that, no matter what my crazy, hormone-starved emotions are doing at any given moment, there is pure happiness at the root of it all.  I’m happy to be alive.  I’m happy to be raising three beautiful kids.  I’m happy to be married to my best friend.
